Annual Meeting

9/30/2020 - 10/1/2020


Join Manufacture Alabama virtually for the 2020 Annual Meeting! 

Although we will not be having hors d’oeuvres and cocktails in close quarters, there will be plenty of time set aside to make meaningful connections and conversations. 

We will feature panel discussions from top leaders in manufacturing and workforce development, a guest speaker on diversity and culture, an overview of business in Alabama from the Secretary of Commerce, Greg Canfield and an update on the State from Governor Ivey.

We encourage our members to embrace the new normal with us as we find new ways of engaging and collaborating with you. We encourage you to invite others from your organization and beyond who don’t typically attend the conference. Lastly, we encourage you to have an open mind and put your trust into Manufacture Alabama at this virtual conference, just as you do to fulfill the vision of making Alabama the best business and political location in the U.S. for manufacturers.

Questions? See our FAQ and Exhibitor FAQ.

We are currently working on an Ask the Experts webinar to answer any uncertainties or questions you may have. Please email to have your specific question addressed.

We look forward to seeing you virtually on September 30!
